Professional Relationships...What does that mean?

I was taken aback today when a close friend conveyed an interaction they had with a local realtor. My friend is considering selling their home (by owner) and wondered what a reasonable asking price would be. Because a realtor would not be "involved", and because my friend did not want to mislead any local realtors, they contacted 3 realtors and asked each of them for assistance in pricing their home. They were careful to communicate to all 3 that they were contacting multiple realtors and also…See More

Profile Information

How did you hear about 48Days.NET, and what do you hope to get out of being a part of this community?
I heard about the 48 Days community from Dan's podcast. From this community, I am inspired to continually recognize and pursue my passions and inspire others to do the same (i.e., inspire others to pursue their passions not inspire others to pursue my passions -- you know what I mean)...
What is your current work situation? Employee, self-employed, generating any income on your own?
I am a free lancer, generating 100% of my own income. After being employed a dozen different places, changing jobs every couple years, fired from one, "failing" at starting my own business (the first time around), but now, much wiser (than before) and succeeding as a free-lancer, I have found a great fit. It's not easy, it's not for everyone, but there's nothing like helping others and making an income doing what I love.
And then...what is your goal/dream for your work life?
Wanting to develop increasing diversity of income so as to have time and energy to stay creative in my area of expertise and help others realize their dreams.
How about your personal life? Any specific goals or achievements or dreams you are pursuing (or want to pursue)?
Per previous, to help others identify and successfully pursue creative/logical (and do-able) dreams as I investigate new creative opportunities. I just finished a book using a technique I call "crowd-authoring". The "crowd" in this case was the 48Days Community! The book is on Amazon - "Living Above the Maze".
What would you say are your strongest talents? How are you 'wired' and what can you offer to the world (it's OK if you don't know yet, but knowing is key to pursuing your dreams!)?
I'm an idea guy. I'm creative. I'm a problem-solver. People say I help them "see through the clutter". My varied background, my failures, my successes, my engineering degree, have all meshed to create what I am today: a restless free-lancer constantly looking for ways to incorporate current technology while "wowing" clientele and just plain being helpful. I'm also futuristic in my thinking and always looking for ways to improve what I see--a "maximizer" to use Buckingham's terminology :)
Do you have a website presence anywhere?
Are you interested in finding a better job, starting a business, growing your current business, writing a book, blogging, podcasting, coaching, speaking, sales & marketing, or something else?
I am looking for ways to grow my business but in a way that is consistent with my passions/strengths and not simply in order to make more money. I am starting to blog (as a creative outlet), have a book idea that just came to fruition on Amazon (Living Above the Maze). I am also starting to identify additional areas where I need coaching so as to focus more on my "magic sauce".
If you have a product or service to promote (now or in the near future) this is your shot to state it! Say all you'd like:
As mentioned above, my crowd-authoring project was just completed (Amazon - "Living Above the Maze") and I am now formulating version 2.0. It will be crowd-authoring on steroids!
Feel free to share your Twitter name, Facebook page, and any other social media way to connect with you!
Have not been active with social media recently, rethinking FB, LinkedIn and Twitter...standby...

Chet- a sequel sounds great ;)

Hi Chet- I would be very interested in jumping in on the book if it is not too late. Either way I am happy to connect as I believe we come from a similar back story. Chapter ideas I could get to you in short order would include 'Mastering Your Mindset', 'Pursuing Your Dreams', or 'Supporting Your Spouse in Their Dreams'. Blessings, Rob Parkman (robparkman.com)
